New-Skin Scar Therapy is a medicated, clear silicone gel used to reduce the appearance of scars and other skin trauma. NewSkinProducts.com claims that the topical gel flattens and reduces scar discoloration, making the scar blend in better with the surrounding skin area.
New-Skin Scar Therapy can be applied to keloid scars, surgery scars or injury scars, according to the product's distributor, Prestige Brands Inc. The company notes that it can also be used on acne marks, stretch marks or burns.
To apply, clean and dry the affected area and apply a light coating of the gel onto the scar, massaging it in. NewSkinProducts.com recommends applying the gel twice daily for a minimum of six weeks for maximum skin healing.
New-Skin Scar Therapy will work on most scars and burns but can be less effective on scars older than two years. NewSkinProducts.com notes that this is because most scars usually take two years to heal before they become permanent.
New-Skin Scar Therapy should not come into contact with mucous membranes, the eyes or open wounds. Discontinue use if redness or irritation occurs on or around the application site.
